Patricia Polacco's GIFTS OF THE HEART and Shel Silverstein's THE GIVING TREE are two thoughtful picture books that I share with my students before having them complete the writing response sheets included in this packet. This FREE mini-unit correlates to our school counselor's SECOND STEP social skills program, and is designed to help students understand the power and importance of kind words and actions. The importance of family traditions and lasting friendships is also a focus. The following activity sheets are included:
*TWELVE GIFTS I CAN GIVE THAT DON'T COST A DIME
*FAVORITE FAMILY CUSTOM
*KIND WORDS QUILT SQUARE
*RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS CARD TEMPLATES
Thank you for your patronage and interest! I hope that your students enjoy learning the life-long lessons taught in this seasonal unit, and that the lessons will instill a sense of cooperation and collaboration in your classroom community all year long!
